Happy Holidays from All of Us at Timbercon!
Christmas for Kids
Founded in 1978, for the past 34 years the Oregon based Christmas for Kids Foundation has sponsored Christmas for Kids, a non-religious charity outreach program. We raise the funds for our project in the form of donated merchandise, employees’ time, and of course cash contributions. Over the past several years we have developed a partnership with several sponsors to make this event truly memorable for the kids.

Founded in 1904, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society is a private non-profit charitable organization. It is sponsored by the Department of the Navy and operates nearly 250 offices ashore and afloat at Navy and Marine Corps bases throughout the world. The Society was incorporated in the District of Columbia and has its headquarters in Arlington, Virginia. It is managed by a Board of Directors whose members are active duty or retired members of the Naval Services, or spouses of active duty or retired members of the Naval Services.

Wounded Warrior Foundation
Is to assist, honor,and support the military men and women/service members/personnel who have so bravely served and sacrificed for our country. We further vow to help the seriously injured who are assigned to Naval Regional Medical Center, Camp Pendleton Naval Hospital, 29 Palms and Fort Irwin as well as those who are going through rehabilitation in the San Diego area. Since being formed live on air at 760AM KFMB Radio, and in partnership with the San Diego Navy League Council, which gives us our status as a 501c3 Foundation, we have been able to help our warriors both financially and with gifts in kind.
